Summary:


Frankie as The Chariot!


The Chariot symbolizes willpower and determination, which Frankie has plenty of since he has to deal with so many things as the co-owner of his family's restaurant. The Chariot also symbolizes mastery and control, and Frankie has mastered his emotions for the most part. He keeps his secret desires (such as his desire for Sam, which he believes to be unrequited) and frustrations about his life under tight wraps, believing that living like this is easier not only for himself, but for everyone around him.


What happens when a series of events cause him to lose this control...? Find out (if this will happen) in my #graphicnovel on @tapas_app, "Sam in New York" (maybe 3 years from now, since this is very far into the story).


Transcript:


Hi, everyone! This week, we’ll look at The Chariot in my tarot deck, the Fortunus Games tarot deck.

I chose Frankie Amato from my Tapas graphic novel, “Sam in New York,” as The Chariot. Frankie is one of Sam’s friends that he got to know as a teenager. Mature, responsible, and outgoing, Frankie is a street-smart young man who will be taking over his family’s restaurant, Amato’s.

The Chariot symbolizes willpower and determination, which Frankie has plenty of since he has to deal with so many things as the co-owner of his family's restaurant. I’ve represented his profession by showing his neighborhood, the Lower East Side, behind him, and his clothing. He typically wears an apron with a name tag when at the restaurant.

The Chariot also symbolizes mastery and control, and Frankie has mastered his emotions for the most part. He keeps his secret desires (such as his desire for Sam, which he believes to be unrequited) and frustrations about his life under tight wraps, believing that living like this is easier not only for himself, but for everyone around him.

What happens when a series of events cause him to lose this control...? Find out (if this will happen) in "Sam in New York" (maybe 3 years from now, since this is very far into the story).

In front of him are two sphinxes, one of them white and the other black. They symbolize duality, positivity, and negativity. They are facing opposite directions, which suggests that they’re pulling in different directions. However, Frankie has the power to control them, so he can go forward despite their opposition.
